    Your car does have what they call lockup torque converter, in your case its locked in all the time and its not suppost to be. unfortunetly the only fix is replacement, and that means tranmission has to come out.

    short trips will be ok, if it dosent buck in a lower gear.

What would make a 2000 buick park avenue over heat and shut off

over heating is from ---low coolant level--blocked radiator cores--fins missing from radiator cores--thermostat not opening--coolant temperature sensor not operating the cooling fan-- driving to fast and not engaging over drive ---if the fan is mechanical and there is a viscous fan hub then the hub is faulty ( overheating at lights but cools down on moving)-- faulty radiator cap--- air in cooling system--run fault codes to check for problems with mixture and timing---low tyre pressures at speed ---over loading--pulling a heavy trailer ---hilly conditions
